"Captain America: Civil War"

Well today Captain America: Civil War opens in theaters! This one proves to be very different as we begin to see a more dark tale, and view some serious disagreements between our heroes. Yes as everything else lately it would seem our "knights in shining armor" will take a walk on the dark side just as Anakin did in Star Wars. Nothing is clear cut anymore, and it truly makes it difficult to figure out who to root for when your heroes are fighting against each other.

The music is done by the English composer, Henry Jackman who also composed the music score for "Captain America: Winter Soldier" which was also a great score so this be good! Jackman was also taken under the wing of Hans Zimmer as a mentor, and has created some really great varieties of music scores such as: X-Men: First Class, Wreck-It Ralph, Captain Phillips, Kick-Ass , Big Hero 6 and The Interview. Music must be in his blood as his father, Andrew Jackman worked with and arranged for Chris Squire from the group Yes, his uncle Gregg Jackman was a sound engineer for the group Yes, and his grandfather Bill Jackman played the clarinet part on the The Beatles song, "When I'm Sixty-Four" from Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. Henry Jackman's next music score will be for the 2nd installment of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back with Tom Cruise also should be good!

I went to see it last night, and it was definitely interesting! I must say the story line from Captain America The First Avenger was probably my favorite, but Captain America: Civil War was an intense, complex, and funny movie. The special effects were much more realistic than Avengers: Age of Ultron in my opinion, and Henry Jackman did a really great job with the music.

To fully understand the story you really have to back to the comic books, and that is where the original story was built by Mark Millar 2006-2007. The story is much more complex, and although the movie involved so many characters , the comic book involves even more with X-Men, Shield, and Fantastic Four. Our hero, Tony Stark's power issues reflected in Avengers: Age of Ultron continue on as his character is often self-serving. You can only do so much story-telling in a 2 1/2 hour movie, so they did a really good job! Best moment: Stan Lee, so hilarious!

Important note: To all you Marvel movie fans ALWAYS stay to the very END of the movie after all the credits have run. If you don't you'll miss the preview of the next movie. Just like Deadpool you never know what they will include, so stay to the very end! Enjoy!
